About Us

Our ministry can be summed up in the following statement- "Scripture and Prayer to Conform us to the Image of Christ."

It is our desire to see every believer rooted and grounded in the faith and equipped for every work of the ministry.  We have numerous ministries that are centered around the Bible and geared for application in our everyday lives.

If you have never visited with us we invite you to come and experience the worship of our God and Savior Jesus Christ.

Our History

Bethel Baptist Church was formed in 1847 and since then has undergone various, structural, and building improvements. Bethel originally began as a church with membership in the American Baptist Convention, but then later withdrew from the denomination in 1994 to become a truly independent church. Much of the rich history of our church has been preserved and kept on site in a special archive section. The church remains an active and thriving body nearly 170 years since its formation and continues to move forward into the 21st century declaring the glory and grace of our God and Savior Jesus Christ.
